“From day one, Dr. Guanche was very forward, honest, and very empathetic. I’ve had two surgeries with Dr. Guanche for a torn labrum in my hip and a total hip replacement. Both went amazing. He has a very caring approach, and he is always willing to listen and answer any questions. His assistant Yojana is amazing, and his PA is great too. Thank you, Dr. Guanche. I’m so grateful for you!”

“Dr. Guanche is the best doctor I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. From his initial personal phone call after viewing my records to hip surgery and all the follow-up phone & telehealth conferences. I cannot say enough kind words to describe Dr. Carlos Guanche.”

“I had got told by my orthopedic surgeon in Visalia, Ca, that I would never be able to go out on hikes in the Sierras again. When I could not accept this prognosis, he referred me to Dr. Guanche, who he said was the best on the West Coast and could help. Because of my age and the amount of time I lived with the problem causing my gluteal muscles to atrophy, the recovery took time, but I have been out hiking in the mountains for the last three months. My surgery was on June 26. Thank you so much, Dr. Guanche.”

I expect to play next season as a freshman at Stanford; I have my speed back; it's been amazing. It was a scary time, but I am attending my dream school!”

“Dr. Guanche is always straight and forward. He doesn’t fill with you with a bunch of maybes and possibilities; he tells you like it is. I appreciate that because I know what’s to expect without any misleading information. He’s very hands-on and listens. I feel this is a crucial step that most physicians miss and get overlooked. I’ve thrilled that I have him as my surgeon and wouldn’t have it any other way.”
